Jakarta: Four Indonesian warriors have been killed and eight others harmed by gunnery shoot in a mischance amid preparing on a South China Sea island, the Army said on Thursday.
"The gun ended up plainly wild and hit officers in the region," Army representative Alfret Denny Tuejeh told AFP.
Of the eight hurt, four endured genuine wounds, he said.
The gun, bought in 2003, was utilized a day prior with no issue, he included. The military have started an examination to discover what brought about the episode.
The island is a piece of the little Natuna archipelago, remote Indonesian islands in the South China Sea, home to rich angling grounds and copious oil saves.
There have been rehashed conflicts amongst Chinese and Indonesian vessels around the islands as of late, provoking Indonesia to support its guards in the zone.
